Slightly hazy deep copper and bronze coloured body with a thick, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of alcohol, cereal, earth and a light note of citrus hops. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent and floral hop character with an overly present malt flavour along with some stale and cardboardie elements. Aftertaste shows some corn and off/foul flavours of the malt along with some noticeable hop bites. Overall, a good sounding ’style’ to attempt to brew, but in practice - at least this attempt - this doesn’t work out so well, and you are left with a very inferior beer. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Crystal City Wine Shop (12th Street Location - since Closed) in Arlington, Virginia on 19-December-2014 for US$2,39 sampled at home in Washington on 30-May-2015 just a few blocks away from the store.

12 ounce can from nimbleprop. Very hazy orange gold and a ton of lacing left on the glass. Belgian yeast, malts, and sugar in the aroma. Big fruit in the flavor is tropical. Malts are rich and powdery. Some spice in here is akin to rye. It begins to get peppery mid glass. The finish is malty and yeasty. A decent beer. slowrunner77 (12037) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 24, 2015
can. dark (for a "pale" murky almost amber pour. 3 1/2 months old. Still quite bitter at first, and dry. Opens up to be quite yeasty on the nose and palate, fruit and spicy yeast playing with earthy spicy hops. I dig the balance. I think I’d like this a LOT brewery fresh. smith4498 (3646) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Pours cloudy amber color with off white head. Aromas of caramel, Belgian yeast, and some pine. Caramel and pine flavors with some doughy yeast. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Shared at RBWG. This one was just off balance for me. Too much Belgian, not nearly enough distinct hops. Murky brown color. Strange spicy notes. Not horrible, just not balanced. MattyKakes (117) - Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Awesome Belgian inspired pale. Love the complexity spicy notes. VA Has a great brewery for this inspiration. AKORN (220) - Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Pours a hazy copper color with a nice white head. Mild malt, caramel, Belgian yeast and hops aroma. Caramel, hops bitterness with some Belgian spices mixed in for taste. Good beer Luvystypotables (1960) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Aroma of hops and citrus, pours a caramel color with a short lasting well laced white head. Tastes of soap with a string floral base, with a chalky floral finish. mike5326 (1754) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Murky caramel color, medium frothy off white. Medium dried hops aroma. Medium body with a sweet flower initial flavor that transitions rather quickly into a bitter herb finish.
